RPG & DB2 Summit, Spring 2013

Posted by Scott Klement on Apr 4, 2013 5:18:14 AM

I’ve always been a huge fan of RPG & DB2 Summit. It’s definitely one of the best conferences that I attend, and I attend a lot of conferences! In fact, I’ve participated in all twelve of the previous RPG & DB2 Summit conferences. However, the thirteenth one which was held in March 2013 had a good chance of being different. You see, I am still recovering from a serious spinal cord injury that I sustained in January, that has left me a paraplegic. That means that my wife and son will have to come to take care of me, and since they aren’t RPG developers, this conference might not be much fun for them. Furthermore, my colleague David Russo would be attending this conference, as an exhibitor, for the first time. If he didn’t enjoy it, I’d surely hear about it every day at work.

On February 19th, 2013 I was discharged from Froedtert Hospital’s Spinal Cord Injury Center (SCIC) rehab unit.

Scott's Start on the Road to Recovery

Posted by Scott Klement on Feb 6, 2013 12:39:26 PM

Life can be very strange sometimes. On Sunday, January 13th, I was so weak that I needed to take a nap after eating half of a bowl of rice krispies. Think about what a strange symptom that is. I was in the Neuro ICU at Froedtert Hospital in Milwaukee, and my nurse called the doctor urgently. They decided to do emergency surgery that ended up saving my life. They knew that it was necessary, in part, because I could not eat a bowl of rice krispies. Life is strange.
